A chalazion is a kind of lump or cyst that develops inside the eyelid. They are small and slow-growing and not usually painful. Although the condition of Chalazion rarely lasts longer than a few weeks, in some cases, it should be treated with a surgical operation.

Healthy individuals with long-lasting Chalazion, where alternative and non-surgical therapies are ineffective, can be candidates to choose the surgical option for chalazion eye treatment.

I travelled all the way from US by myself to come here and get rhinoplasty done, my surgery was a week ago by Dr Hasan duygulu he is extremely professional and excellent at his job. My whole stay was made very easy and comforting by Kate, Sultan and Enes. I have been coordinating with Kate this whole time from the start till the end. She has been amazing throughout and ensuring. They all were there for me when i needed them and even after. It was a great decision for me and i m totally proud of myself that i was able to find the best and proceeded with it. I thank everyone part of luna clinic and the hospital for your kind and loving hospitality. I will recommend coming to Dr Hasan to everyone and anyone without any hesitation

I would highly recommend Flymedi and Abud

I would highly recommend Flymedi. My mom had a gastric balloon fitted at the Luna clinic and everything went smoothly. When I was looking for a clinic in Turkey I found Flymedi as medical tourism, I contacted them by email and they got back to me in a short time. I was assigned Abud as health coordinator and I don’t have enough words to thank him. He’s professional but on top of that he loves what he’s doing and he does really care. As I said before I don’t have enough words to thank Abud and Flymedi and I’m so happy I made the right decision by choosing them. If you want to have the bed experience choose Flymedi and you won’t regret it.

Rhinoplasty 12 days ago- Luna Clinic- Dr. Hasan Duygulu

I had my rhinoplasty done exactly 12 days ago with doctor Hasan Duygulu. Before flying to Istanbul, I was very scared of doing this somewhere far from home but , from the first day of our arrival I knew I chose the right clinic; we met Sultan at the gate of the hospital, she was extremely nice and accommodating and organised, she comforted and still comforting me with answering every question and concerns possible and was with me through the whole before, during and after process which I am still experiencing btw. At the day of the surgery we met doctor Hasan, he is very nice and professional, I told him what I wanted and he took pictures of my face and showed me what my nose could approximately look like after the surgery and addressed my concerns and questions which were a lot btw :) he came to visit me right after I woke up and the next morning as well. The hospital was very luxurious and the nurses were very nice and all our needs were met perfectly, everything was super organised and easy. Today I removed my cast and I am very happy with the results as early as it is with the swelling I am very satisfied and I cant wait to see the final results which seem to be very close to the pictures he showed me. Thank you Luna clinic and especially Sultan for making this life changing decisions the best decision I made. The whole experience was easy, trusted and comfortable thanks to you

I would definitely recommend booking through Flymedi.

If you are thinking about surgery in Turkey, I would definitely recommend booking through Flymedi. Abud was my contact and is there for you 24/7. He was quick to respond and did his very best to answer every question and keep me calm in what can be, a new and scary experience. I would highly recommend and you can be sure you are lucky if he is your contact. The hospital was very clean and staff were very professional and kind. The doctor did an amazing job and I am thrilled!!

Totally recommend

The whole process went really smooth from the beginning, it was really easy to communicate with them. I had my mommy makeover done in June, 2021 and the only thing I regretted is putting off my surgery for some years because I did not want to travel abroad, but in the end it was all worth it. The prices are much lower and I was happy with my surgeon (Prof. Omer), he is such a friendly person and an amazing surgeon as well. I love my results and I've never felt so confident in my body, even before the pregnancy. I can recommend Flymedi and my surgeon in particular.

Not Recommended For Chalazion Treatment

Although a chalazion is not an emergency medical condition, an acute and inflamed chalazion should generally be treated. If your Chalazion does not resolve within one month, and it affects your vision, you should consult an ophthalmologist for definitive examination and treatment

Discharge From Hospital

Overnight stay is not required

Preparation

Before surgery, patients need to make sure to tell their doctor or anesthesiologist about any medications they are taking, including:

 

  • Over-the-counter (OTC) medications
  • Prescription medications
  • Vitamins, supplements and herbal remedies

 

In addition, any health conditions should be mentioned by the patients before the surgery. They should avoid smoking before and after the surgery, as it can negatively affect the whole medical process

How It Is Performed

In the chalazion treatment with surgery, eye surgeons use local anesthesia before making a small incision, typically from underneath the eyelid to clear the contents of the eyelid bump and to avoid visible scarring. There is an alternate procedure for Chalazion involving the injections of corticosteroid. A potential side effect of this second method is a lightening of the surrounding skin, which can be more problematic in dark-skinned people.

Recovery

During the recovery of chalazion treatment, patients will be prescribed antibiotics to help keep the treated eye from becoming infected after the surgery. They may also be given eye pads or an eye patch to protect the eye. Some swelling or bruising around your eye is totally normal, and the surgical site may also leak a reddish fluid for a few days.

Risks

Chalazion treatment surgery is a low-risk procedure, but it does still carry a few risks and complications such as:

  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Recurrence
  • Temporary blurriness
Side Effects

During the recovery period, patients may experience some side effects include:

  • Redness and swelling
  • Bruising
  • Yellow or thick discharge
  • Pain
  • Vision problems
  • A fever higher than 101°F (38°C)

It is important to inform the eye surgeon if any of these side effects develop after the surgery. 

Success Rates

According to a study including 100 patients, after their chalazion treatment, 78% of patients had no recurrence rate after 6 months and good surgical outcomes. The remaining 22% had a recurrence of Chalazion, but with good initial surgical outcome.

Before And After

A chalazion is a small, harmless but disturbing condition that can affect the quality of life if it lasts long. Therefore, even if the last option is to get rid of the red and sometimes painful lump on the eyelid with surgery provides great comfort and satisfaction to the patient.

Faq

What is Chalazion Treatment?

A chalazion can develop when a meibomian gland at the edge of the eyelid becomes blocked or inflamed. These glands are typically for lubricating the surface of the eyes. Treatment for Chalazionis for getting rid of the Chalazion if it is not disappeared in the expected period of time. 

 

Is Chalazion Treatment Painful?

Before the chalazion treatment surgery, patients will be given anesthesia, so they won’t feel anything during the procedure. If any pain develops after the procedure, patients can use prescribed medicines to reduce their discomfort. 

 

Is There Any Option for Chalazion Treatment Without Surgery?

With the guide of the eye doctor, warm compresses, gentle massage, ointments, solutions, and medicated eye pads can be applied to help to treat Chalazion before choosing the surgery.
